All around, a top notch restaurant. I'd driven by it many times and really hadn't thought much of it; sort of unassuming in a strip mall on the northwest corner of 1604 and Redland Rd (new address). It was highly recommended to me by a trusted source, so I thought I would give it a shot. I was v…

I have visited this location for dinner several times but this last visit was the first time I have ever ordered dessert. I ordered their dessert minis which are strawberry cheesecake, key lime pie, and chocolate trifle. I ordered one of each and thought they were very cute when the waitress brought them out. They were all lined up in shot glass like dishes with the spoon sticking straight out. For being so small they defiantly got your attention. The Cheesecake was probably my favorite, it was nice and creamy and had a wonderful flavor in the graham cracker crust and paired with the strawberries was very delicious. It was also a nice alternative to the traditional presentation of cheesecake. The key lime pie i didn't like so much though. The flavor of the key lime was pretty spot on it was just the crust that made the dessert not what it could have been. The crust tasted as if it could have been frozen and then thawed out or like a stale vanilla wafer cookie crumble. The chocolate trifle would have been my favorite since it was for sure made for a chocolate lover like myself but the mousse that was layered in between the cake was a one-note item. It had great texture but that was about all you got from it, it needed some added flavor like a liquor or a coffee or hazelnut or something to give it something special. The chocolate cake that was in it though was very good and my favorite part of that dessert it was light and moist and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. One thing about the cheesecake and key lime that i didn't like was the whipped cream. It tasted like it came from a can and a bit oily it was not anything like a fresh whipped cream so that is one thing i would definitely change. I had a overall great experience and minus the few set backs in the desserts i did really enjoy them. I would just suggest a few alterations and then i would most defiantly order them again.
I haven't been in San Antonio in over 6 years and a buddy of mine agreed to try this place for dinner. When you walk in, the entire area looks like it has not been vacuumed in at least two days. The woman who seated us was rude and quickly told us that our waitress will be with us and walked off to talk to someone near the bar. We ordered the steak and wild mushroom flat bread, and boy was it flat. It fell apart when you tried to pick it up and the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Halfway through my coca-cola, I had the distinct pleasure of having something that was not ice go into my mouth. It looked like part of a nail, but I couldn't be sure. I got passed it and got another drink. This particular restaurant has an outside section to be able to view the RiverWalk and we witnessed over 25 pigeons, ranging from different sizes of height and weight having their way around two tables that had leftover food and plates from previous patrons who had left. It got so bad that another patron tried to get the pigeons to fly away. After 10 minutes of this and myself and others filing this, one of the waiters finally came out and tried to remove the plates. I ordered the New York 12 ounce steak and it was cooked very well. I didn't have any complaints regarding the steak, broccoli and potato. This is honestly not that bad of a place to eat, I will more than likely never eat there again just because of the issues I had when I went.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST STEAKS IN TOWN!! I dine here with my family typically on special occasions but I would dine here several times a week if I could afford it!! This is a perfect example of getting what you pay for. The steaks are extremely tender (THEY ARE DEFINITELY THE BEST IN TOWN) and the side dishes (particularly vegetables) are very fresh, etc. Dining here is a real treat for my family. I made the mistake very recently of dining at another restaurant with a lower priced menu, and had a real bad experience. Longhorn is always packed but they don't take reservations, which bothered me at first; however, the way they get around this is they allow you to call in ahead of time to get your name on the wait list at which time you are given your projected seating time. Long story short - we are usually seated within five minutes after we arrive. Understandably, if you're not there by the projected seat time, you name drops off the list. Smart system!
This family owned business has had such a positive impact on our city. From 1970 - 1985 my Daddy took clients to your restaurant to feed and entertain them almost daily. He had his favorite waitresses (he was a great tipper when they worked hard) - they would bring him peeled radishes and sliced tomatoes as soon as they saw him walking down the entry stairs to be seated. Going back to the Barn always takes me back to my childhood days - great memories! About once a month Daddy would take our family to the Little Red Barn to have a special steak dinner. We were a family of six so we didn't get to eat out much. It was a real treat when we would get to go. One of my favorite things has always been the complimentary salad with your special green dressing and crackers with butter. The steaks have always been great and the pricing hasn't changed that much in the last 35 years. If you want a great meal at a great price - this is the place to go.
I ate here late on a Friday night. My group had 5 people in it. The customer service was excellent. Some of the best I’ve seen in San Antonio. I had the Colossal Shrimp Cocktail, Grilled Jumbo Asparagus and Cajun Ribeye Steak. The shrimp were the biggest I’ve ever seen and tasted great. Same with the asparagus….they were very large and tasted awesome. Things weren’t so great with the steak. Half of the steak was perfect….one of the best I’ve ever had….the other half was so charred I couldn’t eat it. Not sure how that happened….left side cooked perfect, right side charred to the point of being inedible…strange. Prices for dinner are SUPER high. Certainly not someplace a middle class person like me would go more often that ever few years or so. Tip….go to the bar area to during their happy hours…good deals on food. I would go back but because of the prices it won’t be too often.
I had a gift certificate from Ancira, since today is our 20th wedding anniversary, wife and I decided to have lunch here today. Place was pretty empty, just about 5 other tables, so service was prompt, as soon as we were walking through the door, a waitress was already waiting with two salad plates ready show us to our table. She was super friendly. I ordered the 16oz ribeye, medium rare, wife ordered the 8oz ribeye, medium. Both stakes came out with the perfect temperature and they were delicious, really tender and juicy! Prices are in-par with other steakhouses, but the ambience is very informal, so if you are looking for a fancy place, this ain't it, but if you are looking for a fine steak, definitely give it a try. Only down side (not a big one) is that they cook their stakes on a flat top, not a grill.
Was pleasantly surprised by my visit here. A friend from out-of-town and myself dined at Little Red Barn Steakhouse for lunch on a Tuesday. Our salads were on the table before we even sat down. We settled on the ranch dressing which was very tasty. Our waiter was very knowledgable on the food and what the specials included, and was very kind when my friend wanted a few substitutes on her special. We both ordered sirloins, medium rare. They were cooked PERFECTLY which hardly ever happens! First time in a long time I have not had to send back a steak for being too cooked. The rolls..... OMG. SO GOOD. I could have eaten a million of them. I would definitely dine here again, and hopefully I have as positive an experience as I did today!
Now When we want a nice diner or lunch we go to Meson. The food is very very good we was there a few days ago for diner and to day we went for lunch We ordered the Ceasar Salad for two prepared table side and their lunch day special which was crab meat sauteed with a reduction of batter and wine with a hint of east indian spices, friend order the grilled salmon which was fresh and juicy, the Ice Tea and lemonade was the best we ever have, we complement the waiter and he said they use Kangen Water to make their tea, coffee and their thing in the restaurant. They have a full bar with very large wine list at very good price and private room for meeting. The place is beautiful and the people are nice. We recommend
If you haven't been to the Little Red Barn in a while, you need to try it again. This place is classic San Antonio. The picnic tables, salads with bottles of dressing (use as much or as little as you like), wait staff in western attire with cowboy hats (ladies wear cute skirts), and good old fashioned steaks. All types from porterhouse to chopped steak. Try off the menu "Ringo" - chopped steak topped with cheese, grilled onion & peppers. Also the wedge salad is a must have. Their bread is new and much, much better. Fresh yeast rolls served warm with a slight sweet flavor. Our waitress, Terrie, was pretty incredible. Hustling all night making sure everyone was happy. Give it a try. Fun, casual, and Texas all in one!
I came here in 2015 with some co-workers while in town for a conference. My co-worker told us how he used to come here a lot as a child (he grew up in town). The place was empty when we went in. I think it was close to closing time. That didn't matter because we were still greeted with smiles. The menu is a huge sandwich board that you get to pick your meat from. I don't remember which cut of steak I got, but it was really delicious. From where we sat you could see right into the kitchen, which was really cool. They had the real sugar Big Reds, and they served it in a frosty mug. Good place. It's a little dingy, but I do highly recommend going there if you're in San Antonio.
